freeformer User Day
Expert exchange on additive manufacturing
Experts together: on 29 November 2016, the APF team from ARBURG invited customers who use the freeformer to Lossburg to attend a User Day as an opportunity to exchange experiences in additive manufacturing.
Exchange of experiences with ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF)
"There is clearly a great deal of mutual interest in further developing the freeformer and ARBURG Plastic Freeforming and in achieving new advances from all the experience gathered," said Eberhard Lutz, Director Freeformer Sales, as he welcomed the participants. During the theoretical part of the event, the APF team first demonstrated improvements to the standard machines before going on to look at the fundamentals of data processing and material qualification. During the practical part, participants had plenty of opportunities to try out what they had learned in practice "live" on three freeformers. Finally, Dr Eberhard Duffner, Director Development and Plastic Freeforming, outlined the innovations that the development team was currently working on in terms of materials and freeformer technology.
